September 30 - Emily Carr Paints Autumn in Ontario at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. "Help us celebrate the 80th anniversary of Emily Carr's Cross Canada 1927 Tour. It was on this historic trip that Emily had her first national art exhibition in the National Gallery of Canada and where she first met members of the Group of Seven.

Emily Carr's words live again through actress Molly Raher Newman's energetic portrayals of this Canadian icon - artist and author, a visionary before her time. Listen to "Emily" as she shares stories from her life and art and join her and the "Group of Seven" for a Victorian Tea in our Founders' Lounge." King's Phil Chadwick will be Tom Thomson although Tom passed away in 1917 a decade before Emily's visit.
